Jaguar will reveal a pair of performance option packs for its luxury-laden XJ sedan during this year's Los Angeles Auto Show. The aptly named Jaguar XJ Sport and Speed packs live up their promise, thanks to variety of cosmetic and mechanical changes. Top speed for either the 510-bph XJ Supersport or 470-bhp XJ Supercharged jumps to 174 mph – up from the standard car's 155 mph limit.
The "Speed" pack for the XJ Supersport includes a new front air splitter and rear spoiler, 20-inch "Venom" or "Mataiva" style wheels, gloss black grille with chrome surround, black mesh in the side power vents, and red painted brake calipers. The "Sport and Speed" pack for the XJ Supercharged includes many of these same features, along with cabin refinements such as sport seats, suedecloth headlining, and a choice of Piano Black or Carbon Fiber veneer.
"The XJ is much more than a sedan. Its power and potential mean it can out-perform many so-called sports cars. The new Sport and Speed Packs allow customers to enhance that sporting dynamism even further and create an XJ that looks as good as it drives," said Ian Callum, Director of Design for Jaguar Cars.
